Il vangelo secondo Matteo (1964)
Using a partly neo-realist/cinema verité approach while taking great liberties with settings, costume, and score, Pasolini creates a unique blend of straightforward »documentary« and surreal vision. Urgently rushed monologues are contrasted to slow silent tableaux and lively shots of a believable though un-authentic biblical world, managing to be visually rich and sparse at the same time.
Abrupt, powerful, rebellious. Maybe in my book of books.
